The Alberta Views RV and Golf Resort in Alberta is working the nuts and bolts for the long-awaited opening of the facility this summer, according to the Eckville Echo.
“I grew up in Rimbey so this area is very familiar to me and I wanted to kind of do something closer to home,” said project owner and developer Bill MacLean, adding, “We have put quite a bit of effort into the project so far and… we are hopeful that it can catch a bit of a wave in terms of demand. We have had a really good response in the past about the opening of the golf course.”
Formerly operated as the Last Hill Golf Course until 2009, a rezoning application for a Recreation ‘P-R’ District has been submitted to Lacombe County to accommodate the proposed Alberta Views RV and Golf Resort. This would include a nine-hole golf course and 100 full-service RV sites. The property is currently zoned as Agricultural ‘A’ District.
A public meeting was held Feb. 15 at the golf course clubhouse to inform residents of the rezoning application. Project engineers also shared brief reports of studies conducted on Traffic Impact Assessment, water suitability study, stormwater management, water licence and water division for up to 160 RV units, and sanitary and water servicing.
If the re-zoning application is approved the site would be leased to a customer on a yearly basis with access to service only during the camping season, typically between May and October of each year.
